Happy Easter!

March 31st, 2013 by Eleanor · 1 Comment · Uncategorized

We had a really nice Easter with family, church, and friends.  The easter bunny found our house and hid plastic eggs as well as the ones that we dyed (and tatooed!) the day before. We had an egg-hunt after church, where Lydia learned an easter egg hunt life lesson — no stopping to admire the contents of […]

Bahamas – Sat, Mar 23

March 23rd, 2013 by Eleanor · 3 Comments · Uncategorized

Sadly we woke to clouds on our last full day in the Bahamas. Hadley entertained us for a while with her “magic tricks” and then I went for a run to the north part of the island, hoping the clouds would be gone when I got back.  No such luck. Being good Seattle-ites, we didn’t […]

Bahamas – Fri, Mar 22

Today we awoke to a perfect weather day.  Not a cloud in the sky and nice and warm (yeah!).  It was our boat adventure day so we laid low in the morning, enjoying our amazing view and Laura, Mom, and I went to town to check out the shops.  They were somewhat disappointing – lots […]

Bahamas – Thurs, March 21

We awoke at 2am to an incredibly loud clap of thunder that sounded like it was right outside our door and a big thunderstorm to go with it, including lots of rain and lightning.  It got everyone in the house out of bed, although Hadley’s response was “it’s too loud for me to sleep.”  Thankfully […]

Bahamas – Wed, Mar 20

Mom, Laura, and I woke up early this morning to do water aerobics at the Hopetown Lodge.  Our enthusiasm was tempered when we arrived and saw that the pool was GREEN!  Apparently the filter had broken and the part was on order from the mainland.  Some of the brave (and elderly – we were at […]

Bahamas – Tues, Mar 19

Although the weather has been cloudy on and off since we arrived, we awoke to our first truly not good weather day, complete with rain.  We decided to make the best of it and headed out to explore the light house across the bay – one of the oldest lighthouses still tended by a real […]

Bahamas – Mon, Mar 18

  We spent another leisurely morning sleeping late, going for runs and walking on the beach outside our house.  We eventually motivated and headed over to the Hopetown Marina and Resort where Gigi and Grandpa are keeping their boat to get a few things off and play in the pool.  It’s definitely just as much […]

Bahamas – Sun, March 17

March 17th, 2013 by Eleanor · Comments Off on Bahamas – Sun, March 17 · Uncategorized

We all slept until 11am, catching up on our sleep deficit from our travels the day before.  After a leisurely breakfast, we went in search of a beach on the bay side where the waves weren’t so intimidating for Lydia and Hadley.  We found a nice spot (and some adorable houses and gardens) and waded […]

Bahamas!

I kept a journal during our trip to the Bahamas since I wanted to remember the incredible trip.  Lots more Bahama (or as Lydia and Hadley say “BO-hamas”) posts to follow! March 16 We arrived after blissfully uneventful travels that included 3 (overnight) flights and a ferry.  Aunt Laura was at the ferry dock when […]
